    I studied Spanish with Cristina Asturias on two separate occasions, and together those experiences were fundamental in helping me to become conversational in Spanish. I had studied Spanish formally through high school and developed some comfort with reading and writing. But my ability to actually speak Spanish or to understand it when spoken in normal conversation and in real-world situations was practically non-existent. With her patient instruction, I was able to develop my conversational skills in a safe and comfortable environment. We did work on advanced grammar and vocabulary-building, but by far the most useful part of her instruction was the time we spent talking together. We could be discussing world events, history, movies or any other topic – even with her steady and careful correction of my grammar and work choice, the learning came effortlessly. With her help I went from a novice in Spanish to somebody who can hold a fairly fluid conversation. I now work as a doctor and I have several Spanish-speaking patients who I see regularly without help from any translator service. I have been able to travel through Latin America with little difficulty as well – I even get complimented on my relative lack of accent. When learning a new language there is no substitute for real-time structured practice, and she is an expert at that.

    My experience in Spanish immersion classes with Cristina Asturias was wonderful. I had individual instructions daily for two weeks, and Cristina explained the lessons and clarified all my questions. She is a very kind and good natured teacher, very patient and with good humor. I can highly recommend Cristina as a Spanish instructor!
